This blog is all about recipes that we can all cook for ourselves and enjoy. However, there are over 1 billion people hungry in the world that are hungry and do not even have the basics, let alone the luxury of being able to try out various recipes. I would like to focus this post on a wonderful campaign to help African small farmers.
Bill Gates recently challenged readers of his blog to develop tools to increase awareness of the importance of small farmers in addressing the problem of hunger. The Adventure Project (TAP) is responding with its One to 1000 initiative, and TPRF is one of its sponsors. This program will not only increase awareness of this important subject, but also help 1,000 small farmers in Africa through TAP's collaboration with Kickstart.
The idea is for at least 1,000 people to set up an about.me page that tells the small farmer story. Read all about it here, and then set up your own about.me profile!
